SkiN real ingredients. real simple.


I am always happy to get the chance to try out new cruelty free skin care brands and today I like to introduce you to SkiN.

SkiN products are of course all cruelty free.

Stephanie Simkins is the founder of SkiN and I love her philosophy:

"As a nutrition consultant, organic caterer and herbalist, I combine my love of holistic healing, whole foods, and nutrition, along with the use of organic oils and botanicals to create products I believe will nourish your mind, body and spirit.

 Skin is the culmination of my passion for all things real, natural, organic and living.  Nothing fake.  No chemicals.  No additives. Enjoy!"

SkiN Naked Face Wash:

This is a liquid foaming facial cleanser. The foam is super nice and soft and get´s its job done: my face feels super clean after washing it with this. This cleanser smells exactly like curd soap if you have ever smelled curd soap? Well, after reading the ingredients this is exactly what this is - only in a liquid consistency (curd soap is made without fillers, colorants, fragrances, optical brighteners and without chelating agents, such as EDTA, and synthetic surfactants.)

With the most simple ingredients (coconut oil, olive oil, jojoba oil, aloe vera, apricot kernel oil, plum kernel oil, roesmary extract, vitamin E oil) this stuff manages to do exactly what it is supposed to. And don´t worry: it does not mean that it is greasy reading all these oils! Not at all.

I admit:  I am not a big fan of the scent of curd soap but many agree that perfumes and fragrances have nothing to do inside of our skin care. This makes this facial cleanser a very good choice for those with sensitive skin. Be careful with your eyes as this can sting.

SkiN Lemon Fresh Toner

I love this toner! It smells like fresh made lemonade! Super invigorating and makes my skin feel very balanced. If you love citrus scents- you will adore this toner! This product contains also only pure and clean ingredients: Lemon verbena hydrosol, witchhazel, lemongrass and tea tree oil.

SkiN Seaberry Anti Aging and Restorative Face cream

This is a wonderfully whipped and light weight, not greasy moisturizer with a hint of a citrus scent. Here are the ingredients: Sea buckthorn oil, soybean oil, jojoba oil, coconut oil, plum kernel oil, avocado oil, vegetable glycerin, distilled water, vitamin E oil, grapefruit seed extract. Again: wonderfully simple and natural ingredients!

Skin Grapefruit Pom Body Lotion:

This is a very light weight lotion that dries very quick and does not leave any greasy residue on the skin and therefore is also a wonderful hand lotion. In fact: my husband loved to use this on his hands as well! The Grapefruit scent is not overpowering- just a hint and very lovely.

Here is the wonderful ingredient composition: Sweet Almond Oil, jojoba oil, virgin coconut oil, pomegranate seed oil, cocoa butter, vegetable glycerin, grapefruit essential oil, vegetable emulsifying wax, distilled water, vitamin E oil, grapefruit seed extract.
